“The Light of Pure Spirit”, a poem

The following is a composition in the style of Daoist alchemical poetry. Enjoy.

“The Light of Pure Spirit”

Begin at the beginning
For there is nowhere else

Relax the body and the heart is relaxed
Relax the heart and the mind is relaxed
Relax the mind and the whole world is relaxed
If you stop and look
You can see the thin veil
Of a looming void
Practice seeing it,
And the emptiness of this void
Becomes a clear and open infinitude
Of light

Allow the eyes and ears
To look and listen inward
Rest the mind on the breath
Rest the heart on the center
Rest the body on itself
And from this emerges the true mind
As the light of pure spirit
In the chamber of the heavenly heart

This is the impetus that created the world

When you look and listen inward
Consciousness encircles itself
Consciousness through consciousness
Is the doorway to the deep

The center is everywhere
In the center there is an opening
In the opening there is nothing
In nothing there is a mystery
In the mystery there is a light
A heart within a heart
A seed within a seed
A world within a world
A pearl of power and peace
Care for this pearl
Gently and patiently
And the pearl will yield spiritual gold

Carry this peace
Always and everywhere
And it will carry you
